No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash Monday afternoon on Route 16 about five and a half miles west of Gillespie.
According to Heath Bryan of the Illinois State Police, 32-year-old Carl Thompson of Carlinville was driving a 2003 Buick SUV eastbound on Route 16 just east of Whitefield Road when he crossed over the center line and sideswiped a 2004 GMC truck driven by Dennis Kronable, 60, of Hardin, then struck a trailer carried by Kronable’s truck. Thompson’s vehicle then left the roadway to the left, hit the ditch and overturned, coming to rest on its roof.
Thompson had one passenger, 35-year-old Kristina Gladden of Springfield. Kronable had three juvenile passengers, all of Hardin. No injuries were reported.
Thompson was charged with improper lane usage and having no insurance. Macoupin County Sheriff’s Department was also on the scene.
